Bill Young Accused of Being in the Pocket of the Insurance Companies

I am not sure who, but someone is running robo-calls against Rep. Bill Young, accusing him of being in the pocket of insurance industries. The message didn’t come through clearly on my machine and my machine cut it off before it finished (that’s why I don’t know who’s paying for it).

Young has received well over $300,000 from the healthcare industry, not including money from lobbyists. Roughly 55% of his money comes from Political Action Committees, just over 1/3 from individuals and the rest, we’re just not too sure about
(that’s not to suggest anything shady – just acknowledgement that it can be hard to figure out sometimes).
